Our show about Curling reflects our insights and observations about our favourite game, the athletes and their stories during the biggest competitions. 

Feb 27, 2018

In this latest episode the girls discuss the results of the Men's and Women's Team play at the Olympics and what happened to Team Canada!?  And will these results cause possible system changes in the future of the Canadian Trial system.  They also discuss is it worth it to chase the Olympic dream these days with all the pressure that is put on the athletes.  Congratulations to all the podium finishers, Sweden, Korea and Japan for the women and USA, Sweden and Switzerland for the men.  How important are these Olympic curling medals to the other countries and what impact will it make to the growth of the game and the future of curling.  Of course, the feel good stories are always a favourite but there's also the news of the OAR Team getting stripped of their bronze medals in Mixed Doubles.  Finally, are the commentators too harsh when it comes to commentating and questioning the curlers?  Enjoy!

After a whirlwind curling weekend the girls discuss everything Scotties! How their picks did, the overall impression of the new Scotties format, surprises and disappointments and the crowning of Team Manitoba as the Scotties Champions.  The girls also discuss Team "Wildcard" not having a coach, Leslie Wilson's article about her mental health struggles, different sweeping styles and the "white toast theory".  Lots of men's provincial results happened over the weekend - Ontario, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Newfoundland so the girls discuss those results as well.  Also starting to hear rumours about the teams who are shaking things up for the next Olympic cycle.
